Samsung Will Still Participate in Apple A8 Processor's Production

Although TSMC is said to become a major supplier of the Apple’s A8 processors with 60-70 percent of the production load, the South Korean company will still have to produce the remaining 30 or 40 percent of chips.

Apple's A7 Processor is Manufactured by Samsung



Apple’s still working with Samsung - Chipworks has confirmed that the A7 chip used in iPhone 5s is manufactured by the South-Korean company.

We have confirmed through early analysis that the device is fabricated at Samsung’s Foundry and we will confirm process type and node later today as analysis continues. That being said, we suspect we will see Samsungs 28 nm Hi K metal Gate (HKMG) being used. We have observed this same process in the Samsung Exynos Application processor used in the Galaxy S IV. Our engineers will be deprocessing the Apple A7 as soon as they can to confirm this or to provide different information.

One of the Apple’s main rivals is one of its main suppliers.

New iPads to unveil on September 10th?



According to information provided by Bloomberg, Apple will unveil both iPhones and new iPads on September 10th. Previously it was widely believed that the iPads will be presented on a special event in October.

Apple, based in Cupertino, California, plans to introduce new versions of its phone and tablet at a Sept. 10 event, a person familiar with the matter has said, and the company promised “several more game changers” in the product pipeline as it tries to fend off Samsung Electronics Co. and Chinese makers selling cheaper handsets.

However, the information was provided in a report concerning Apple opening it first retail store in Tokyo since 2005. Thus it may not be true. Recent reports state that Apple is not likely to prepare  iOS 7 for iPad, so its release will be held in October.
